Arizona Power of Attorney Forms
An Arizona power of attorney (POA) form allows a person to delegate a trusted person with the capacity to handle one’s personal matters. The individual completing the form (the “principal”) can make the agreement remain in effect indefinitely, or only until their agent completes all tasks. In Arizona, power of attorney forms fall under title 14 of the state’s statutes, which set out requirements over how a POA should be completed.
